Good place to have a coffee. This plaza is surrounded by 16th century houses and a 18th century fountain. Walk from here to visit the Hotel de Ville, where the Geneva Convention was signed, Maison Tavel, oldest house in Geneva, Cathedral St. Pierre, stroll on the promenade

My daughter pointed out that the fascination of Geneva is partly that it is built on several levels. This place is a beautiful position from which you can appreciate this perspective.

Was a central market location many years ago, so more historic interest than anything else. Just a place to note on the way to other sites.

A small square with a tiny park and lots of tourists watching other tourists having a drink in a big terrace. Do not expect too much. You get some nice photos, nothing else.
